Hi. I am using PS CS5. I face a few problems. First of all, in Step 5, you said to make the Hue to 195. But PS gave an error saying the value rages between -180 to 180. But the biggest thing is, I followed everything you said, but the image remained as before - simple black and white [I used 180 in step 5]. I mean, there was no resultant change in the image. Please can you help me?
Thank you thank you! I've always been wondering how those vintage photo touches are done. Now it's so easy! BTW this technique is very versatile since you can adjust the lightness and darkness of the overall image from the slider AND within the mask (by applying your Levels) to isolate the adjustment to specific tones.
I know this tutorial was made some time ago, but I just saw it and it was extremely helpful. I was watching CSI and I saw that the shadow were sort of blue and the highlights were sort of orange. I tried to achieve that effect but failed horribly. Now...think of the possibilities!
Thank you so much, dA needs people like you. Gosh, I really appreciate this.
i've tried this with PS7, but i end up with a single toned image at the end. similar to yours, but without the blue. even using your b&w image above, i get the same result. am I missing something here? does this work with ps7? i consider myself a reasonably well educated user when it comes to Photoshop.
Sorry I didn't comment on this earlier... I only had time to fav it... this tutorial is the best PS one I've come across in ages... would you believe that until i saw this tutorial, I used to duplicate a the same layer, change the hue and then manually delete all areas that were not shadowy... the number of errors were much higher and I almost never got what I desired... this is such a relief.... my jaw almost hit the floor when I realized it could be done in this way... thank you very very much. You're a great artist and you're a generous one too.

Haha, har ju tillgång till ett mörkrum. När farsan gick över till digitalt sparade han det mesta av den gamla utrustningen i en lada. Nu när han byggde ny atteljé valde han mellan mörkrum till mig o några till eller en bastu i ett av rummen. Det blev mörkrum, strax efter flyttade jag 28 mil bort så nu är det förråd istället. Saknar en bastu att komma hem till då det inte är lika roligt att fota analogt när det kan dröja tre månader innan man kan framkalla.
Borde väll se till att gå en analog fotokurs snart innan dom försvinner från skolorna helt
